    Need help with FTP...........

    Hi Guys,

    This may sound stupid, but is it possible to transfer
    files from one website to another.

    Example my current account is with webhost.com
    and my new account is going to be with goodhosts.com.

    So it possible to transfer files from one website to another.

    I have a dail-up internet connection and need to transfer
    my website(600mb in space) from the current server to a new server.

    Thanks.

    I can't thank you enough, this helped me massively.

    Well I haven't tired it yet but will soon and can't wait.

    You saved me hours of upload time.

    Thanks again.

    FlashFXP - I hope all CuteFTP and all other FTP users at least give it a look - it's one of the great ones.

    Also - try to do the transfer useing telnet and tar
    This transfers huge sites in seconds, instead of hours with FTP.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    How can you transfer the files from one website
    to another, using telnet?

    I don't have too much knowledge of Telnet commands.

    Whats the easiest way?

    1. Log into telnet in your old host's servers, go to your public_html directory, and type in the following command:

    tar -cpzf yourdomain.tar.gz *

    2. Now login to SSH in your new account and go to your public_html directory. Then type in the following command:

    wget 123.123.123.123/yourdomain.tar.gz

    where 123.123.123.123 is your old website's IP address. If your old account was a shared account, you may need to type the following:

    wget 123.123.123.123/~oldusername/public_html/yourdomain.tar.gz (all on one line)

    3. Wait for the transfer to finish. Then type:

    tar -xzf yourdomain.tar.gz

    That should do it. Better if you use secure telnet too (SSH)
